“I have accepted fear as a part of life, specifically the fear of change, the fear of the unknown. I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: Turn back, turn back; you’ll die if you venture too far.”
– Erica Jong
Shiny for Illustration Friday – 4″ x 6″ Postcard
All the mice are safe today. Kitty has something shiny, which is Illustration Friday’s
word of the week. This is Jock and was painted from a photo by Rozzi
at WetCanvas. Jock is a special needs cat who loves to sit like this.
In the photo, there was no toy. I had to give him something shiny to ponder.
It’s painted on a handmade paper postcard by Indian Village. I got a
bunch of these real cheap a couple years ago. I’m almost out and I can
no longer find them. Bummer.
